THE OPERATION

MDL Outfitters is a uniquely small and personal operation that has been in business in Iowa since 2016 with now also adding access in eastern Kansas in 2020. In Iowa, MDL operates as an archery-only outfit, but with Kansas being a new adventure, we will be offering early muzzleloader season and archery season semi-guided hunts.

From the cedar thickets to the standing bean fields, from the timbered creek bottoms to the swamp lands and pastures, you will be in the hot seat with us on your trophy whitetail deer hunt in Kansas.

Averaging 80-100% shot opportunity during the archery season in Iowa on mature whitetails during any given year, we feel that our offered Kansas hunts will mirror such and are one of the best investments that hunters can make when purchasing a semi-guided hunt in the midwest for these corn-fed Kansas bruisers!

Come see for yourself!

THE STATS

IA & KS Whitetail Deer Hunts 

Average Harvest: 155"
-
Shot Opportunity = 90%
(100% excluding 2019)
-
Highest: 202" Gross B&C Non-Typ (Bow)
Lowest: 125" Gross B&C Typical (Bow)
-
Min. Maturity: 4-1/2 Years
Target Maturity: 5-1/2 Years +
Target Score: 160" Gross B&C +
-
80% of the bucks that we kill have never been seen by us before, in-person or by trail camera monitoring
-
NOTE: We do not use "Kill Percentage" as a referenced statistic due to a surprisingly high rate of wounding shots, missed shots, and relative selectiveness by hunters looking for deer higher than 170" at 5-1/2 years of age or older. The only statistic that we calculate is shot opportunity, which is highlighted above.
